Desired Experience & Qualification

Senior IT Support Technician

This is a full time position based in Centurion.

Location

Although the position is available at our headquarters in Centurion, the position will require traveling

to customer’s premises within South Africa as required and can include overnight stays.

Duties and Responsibilities

We provides full stack IT support, from networks to the desktop, including servers. The operating

systems that we use to achieve this are Windows and Linux (and MacOS if we have to). Our preferred

OS is Linux, specifically RedHat based. The incumbent will need to be able to provide this scope of

support to any of our customers. Many of our customers have very specific software requirements and

the implied support around these ensures that there is always something new to learn. Being able to

perform these tasks as well as helping and teaching more junior (or senior) team members is very

important. We are a team, and the incumbent will need to be able to integrate into that team.

Knowledge, Skills and Abilities

The incumbent will need advanced skills in the administration of both Windows and Linux servers.

This includes skills in the administration of the services that run on these machine, like email, HTTP,

DNS, AD etc. Knowledge of the Microsoft Azure control center is definitely required. Creating and

controlling users in a hybrid AD environment is part of what we do.

SAMBA installation, configuration and control, including AD integration and SAMBA as a Domain

Controller, is a further part of what we do, so knowledge in this area is advantageous.

The end goal of our services is to provide the end user with a stable secure platform for them to

accomplish their goals. As such, it is vital that the incumbent can work with these end users in a

professional and competent manner. The services regarding this includes high level as well as low level

desktop support.

Networking skills are a further requirement, particularly in the area of building LANs, VLANs, WANs

and connectivity to the Internet through broadband technologies. This also involves controlling access

to resources through fire-walling technologies like IPTables.

The incumbent must be able to work with people and be able to support the end user in such a manner

as to teach and guide that user, making them feel as if they are part of the process. Good relations is key

to our operation and relationship management is one of the most important abilities that the incumbent

must posses.

The incumbent must further be self motivated and must have the ability to make decisions and follow

through with the execution of those decisions. The willingness to learn, to ask questions and to work

with the rest of the team is vital.

Credentials and Experience

Five years experience in server administration (Windows and Linux) is preferred for this position, as

well as three years experience performing end user support. Two years experience in networking

technologies (TCP / IP specifically) will be beneficial.

We place more weight on experience when we make our decisions, but accreditation in technologies

pertaining to this position are a welcome additions to the decision making process.
